This would be a great Napa (or wherever you took it) poster used by the vineyard owners for advertising!!

Very, very nice image. IMO, the grapes need to be a bit brighter to form a better match with the back lit leaf. The bright colors in the hot air balloons add a nice touch.

Absolutely love the trio in this composition! Love the how the light plays on the grapes and illuminates those lovely purple hues. I also love how the bokeh in that shot with the 'circles' in the backdrop complementing the circular shape of the grapes. Love the texture and details that you show us in the grape leaves in the top right photo. And the cherry on the top, is when you pull back from the close-ups to show us the full scale beauty of the vineyards. The rolling grapevines that line the valley, the mountains in the distance, and the added bonus of the hot air balloons rising just makes this triptych a stunning beauty to look upon.
